NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (March 5, 2007) - The superstructure of USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70) stands in the morning light on the pier of dry dock 11 at Northrop Grumman Newport News shipyard. The ships mast has just been reinstalled, a major milestone accomplished before the aircraft carrier leaves dry dock this spring for a floating pier. Vinson is currently undergoing her scheduled refueling complex overhaul (RCOH), an extensive yard period that all Nimitz-class aircraft carriers go through near the mid-point of their 50-year life cycle.
